Happy Trick or Treat!!


Happy Halloween to all! I hope you had a wonderful time trick or treating with your loves ones! I decided to write again in this blog. It has only been one year! LOL
I always feel like the need to write again for the sake of our journal especially for our son. I dedicate this blog to my only son who is soon going to be 8 years old.

Ok, now talking about Halloween, we hardly do big things and special. But this year I decide to do some makeup on his face like scary zombie. Not quite match with his costume, the idea is ‘young zombie Anakin Skywalker killed Dart Vader’ bummer…. That sounds to pushy and unreal as Anakin is Dart Vader LOL. But anyway he got the custom he likes and I like to do my part doing makeup and photo shoot on him. So here it is:

Our breakfast was very simple too, ‘Bananas Chocolate Chip muffins anything with chocolate in it makes the whole family happy!!

Bananas Chocolate Chips Muffin:
Got the recipe from Food Network


2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup dark brown sugar 
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups smashed bananas (about 4 to 6 bananas)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup of chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 425 degree F. Lightly brush a 12 muffin tin whit butter and set aside. 

Whisk the flour, baking soda, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a medium bowl; set aside

Which the banana, oil, milk, eggs, salt, and vanilla in a large measuring cup with a spout or another bowl.

Make a small well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the center, then stir with a wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are moistened but still lumpy. Do not over mix the batter or your muffins will come out dense. Gently stir in the nuts. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tin. 

Put the muffins into the oven and immediately reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F. Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking. (Insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin to check if it is done. Toothpick should come out clean). Cool muffins in the pan on a rack for a couple minutes. Turn the muffins out of the pan and cool on the rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
